Malaika Arora reveals interesting insights into her relationship with Arjun Kapoor on Neha Dhupia's chat show, No Filter Neha.

From what she thinks of him, to her dream destination wedding to how well she knows the Kapoors, Malaika does not shy away from answers.

She offers a little peek into her wardrobe too. For instance, did you know she has 40 white shirts?

"I am obsessed!" Malaika confides.

On why Arjun Kapoor hates her photography.

He doesn't like my pictures because he thinks I do a really crappy job at clicking his pictures.

I think the thing is I think he just clicks way better pictures of me. So I think whatever pictures I click just kind of fail in comparison.

How many Arjun-starrers has she seen?

All of them!

What does she think of Arjun Kapoor?

He is perfect!

Where would she plan her destination wedding?

Destination would be a beach destination because I am a beach girl.

Who would she wear at this destination wedding?

I would say Eli Saab.

Just because I am all about the white wedding, always liked that whole thing of a white wedding and bridesmaids would be my closest girls. My girl gang.

Her best woman at her wedding.

My closest would be my friend Vahbiz.

On working before, through and after her pregnancy.

You know this is so far back. My son is 17 years old.

It's amazing to see so many women today, you know, who are mothers, who work right through their pregnancy and after because otherwise, everybody thinks it's 'chalo pack up karke niklo'.

So I guess back then when I actually worked throughout, it was pretty amazing.

Nobody actually knew about it or talked about it because there was no such platform to talk on.

But yeah, I remember I first started off with full length, then I went mid, then I went three-fourth, and then waist and then bust and then neck till then it was only one eye, one mouth, one lip, one ear.

I have been through that whole process so yeah, I think the best part about my pregnancy was the fact that I could just be.

I was not sitting at home and crying and saying oh God! I am in pain, when will this be over and done with.

I worked throughout and I think that's what kept me going. 

I worked before, I worked through, I worked right after, exactly 40 days after.

I took that 40 days off because my mom was like 'No you have to!'

Exactly 40 days after, I was up and about and shooting and working.
